My Wo Men Dakai poem

I thought I should post this here to add to the collection.

Learning Love

by Lysana (FireBride) McMillan

A poem I set out to write

My topic deeply mined

For love's a constant subject

To writers thus inclined

Being an emotion

It's better felt than seen

And much of its expressions

May say less than they mean

If love is in the doing

As many choose to think

Speaking it can bring a pause

And drop it out of sync

Being and becoming

I was just looking back on my blog entries here. I kept writing about big internal revelations. This is a good thing, mind, as I can look back and see a few things more from those points of epiphany than I did at the time. Since the last one, though, the work and the walk on the path to Registration has been different. Quieter. Smaller realizations have come through. All of them important, all of them necessary. Not all learning is done in bursts of mental fireworks. If it was, we'd have no…

Emotional labor, sex work, and the Companion

This article appeared in my Facebook feed this morning. I'm going to elide whatever political thoughts that could emerge (and have, to be honest) and focus on other aspects of what it has to say. Where it grabbed me the hardest relative to the Guild was the discussion of emotional labor. In other words, the support and attention…

Love and the temporary arrangement

Beeflin noted in class today that a well-trained Companion "can find a place in their hearts for everyone they encounter." I felt a resonance there with how I already love. When I applied to the Guild, I made a comment about how I've spent a fair amount of my SL time looking for love in a lot of places and sometimes finding it. That's been my basic pattern for for most of my eight years on the grid. Some have stayed around longer than others, and many of them have ended in different ways.…

My Lady Lysana, about "Love and the temporary arrangement", I would offer to you the saying; if you cage a bird considering it to be yours, how much more would you be content to open the cage door and let it fly, if it returns of it's own free will will you know more so it is indeed yours.  

With respect Siraskme.
